I post and delete my drum covers prior to the final production because certain aspects of the video changes once uploaded to Youtube.  These test uploads help me make adjustment to sound and video quality.  On two such occasions, March 5th, 2020 & August 3rd, 2020, I was given a strike and accused of violating the " Spam, deceptive practices & scams" guidelines.  I challenged the action, but I did not know deleting the video would void my doing so.  I create these videos for drum instructors to help me get better, the drum community I am a part of is called Drumeo.  My video is finished and I cannot upload it and my dispute concerning the guidelines is removed leaving me with a strike and no way of receiving their input on 2 months work putting the drum cover together.  Please help me resolve this matter.  This is the finished version of the test videos I uploaded and deleted to improve it's quality.
I am really bummed about the confusion over this matter.  Youtube has been a great resource in helping me learn to be a drummer since I picked up the sticks 5 years ago.  Thank you for your time, Daniel M. Smith

Eric, there must be a way to rectify this.  If I received a strike for uploading and deleting a video because the policy is you can't re-post a deleted video, I would understand.  “ Spam, deceptive practices & scams”  has nothing to do with my actions.  I don't get it.  I need to know what I did to cause this, because it's happened twice, so it doesn't happen again.  Imagine driving your car and your following all the rules of doing so and a police officer stops you and gives you a $200 ticket and he doesn't tell you why.  Two months later, the same thing happens and he tells you that if you get another ticket, you will lose your Drivers Licence.  You don't know what you did to draw his attention.  You don't know what you did wrong and...if it happens again you done.  How do you handle this?

I don't understand how there is nothing a creator can do to effectively resolve any issues at all with youtube. Even if you are doing really well on here and you get one of those supposed youtube handler/expert people on your side, they are still so limited in what they can do. It is insane that they treat small businesses' this way. And that is exactly what we the creators are. If these kinds of business practices were held out in the real world, it would never fly. So how can this be the way it is done? Do they have no conscience? Sorry, this doesn't help you at all, but I am worried because I put in a lot of effort into my channel, and I'd hate to lose the subscriber base/income once it gets going because of shady business practices like this. Might as well be working for the mob.

Once the video is deleted, there is nothing that can be done.

To avoid the mistake in future, if you upload a video as a test, give it a proper title (don't call it something like 'test video) and a full description. Of course no one will see that except---a YouTube reviewer. Then, if your video gets flagged for review (YouTube is bound to be a bit suspicious of copyright-infringing videos uploaded as test videos), the reviewer will know exactly what he or she is looking at. 

Strictly speaking, you are not doing covers, you are doing play-alongs (they are an entirely different thing). I am not sure why YouTubers are so reluctant to use the word 'play-along''.
